Top ranked cerebral palsy claims lawyers
Who we are
Our cerebral palsy claims lawyers have secured over £100 million in compensation for families but we also believe in providing extra help, quite apart from handling the legal aspects of a cerebral palsy claim.
In-house cerebral palsy specialists
We also have an in house case manager to help with advice on non-legal issues. This has been particularly helpful to families trying to get the most appropriate help for their children.
We provide an important and acclaimed service to clients after a case has been concluded, either as formal Trustees of a personal injury trust, or as Professional Deputies with the Office for the Public Guardian and Court of Protection. Our role is to continue to assist the family both in terms of fund management but also, crucially, ongoing assistance and access to skilled advice to ensure that the needs of the client continue to be fully met. When major decisions have to be taken, families find it invaluable to talk problems through with the Trustees or the Deputy and this is often in conjunction with the solicitor who conducted the cerebral palsy claim with whom they have formed a trusting relationship. The costs of that work are built in to the claim itself so the expense arising has already been provided for.
We approach clients holistically looking after all of their needs rather than just those which are strictly legal. We stay in regular touch and ensure that wider issues surrounding the care of a child with cerebral palsy such as welfare benefits and educational issues are addressed at the appropriate time including review and advice concerning statements of special educational need.
Acknowledged cerebral palsy claim experts
We are also acknowledged experts in fields related to cerebral palsy including perinatal death (including stillbirth), erb's palsy and maternal negligence claims resulting from inappropriate obstetric and gynaecological care.
I have to say I was extremely impressed with the service in what was a very difficult time for myself and my family. The advice and support I had from the team was fantastic and invaluable. They put mine and my wife's mind at rest on many occasions and got a great result for us. Thank you from all of us.
